Nineteen years after the events of the first movie, a young lady by the name of Hannah (Natalie Ramsey) returns to the town of Gatlin (where all the murders took place) in order to find out about her own past. Isaac (John Franklin), the leader of the children in the first two films of the series, is comatose and locked up in a hospital. Why he's in a coma isn't made clear, so I'm just going to assume that it's a result of something from one of the previous entries to the series that I haven't seen. As Hannah is making her way into town, she sees an old preacher man on the side of the road having car trouble, so she picks him and and offers him a ride into town. He starts talking some nonsense to her, a bit of an argument starts, and then he vanishes into thin air. Being a bit spooked by this, Hannah swerves the car and plows straight into a corn-field, where she meets up with Cora (Alix Koromzay), the sheriff of Gatlin. Cora takes her license and does a check on it, and then realizes that Hannah is "the prophesied one". Cora then takes Hannah to the hospital, where she meets up with Gabriel (Paul Popowich) and eventually sees Isaac in his comatose state and reaches out to touch his hand... at which point, Isaac snaps out of his coma. The whole prophecy is soon revealed, Hannah is the main part of it, and Isaac intends to carry through with it all. Yay varially.

Granted, I'm not a huge fan of this series, but I was hoping that at least one of the entries in the series would be mildly entertaining. While that may be true for one of the other films, it certainly wasn't for this one. The storyline starts out decent enough with the usual type of storyline laid out and started on, but then things just turn to shit when all of the storyline twists start to come into play. It seems as though these twists were thrown in only to shock the viewer, and there was no real thought or explanation behind them other than "hey, they'll never see this coming, so let's do it!". Had only one or two of these types of things come into play, then it wouldn't have been such a big deal; I'd assume that maybe I missed something, or it was a small blemish on the film; but no, after the midway point of the movie, we're "treated" to one of these shocking twists in almost every other scene. The end result is one cluster-fucked film, filled with lots of insanely laughable plot-twists, unfinished storylines, and unexplained happenings.

Things might have been saved by a little bit of bloodshed here and there, but the movie fails in that department as well. We're treated to only two decent death-scenes, with one of those two being a split-second hallucination. There's three other kills in the running-time, but each one was so horridly boring that they really don't even count towards the total. Maybe if the killer children had returned in this installment, they wouldn't have slacked so much with the weaponry... but instead of this featuring children murdering adults, we're treated to the kids from the first film who are all grown up and still worship Isaac, but don't do anything to please him. I suppose that in a storyline sense that does make a bit of sense, but that leaves us with a very misleading title. I'm not even going to get into the acting part of this film. Everyone here has that WB-TV-Movie look, but they sure wouldn't meet the acting requirements to play in anything that WB would produce. I'll let you, the reader, decide how much talent that leaves this cast with.

Once again, another horrid installment in the series with nothing to offer except for one smoking-hot female (Sydney Bennett), who only winds up with a very minor bit-part. When that's the highlight of a film, it can't be deserving of much more than a 1/10.
